Abstract

Pygmy is an anthropomorphic device that magnifies hand expressions. It is based on the concept of hand anthropomorphism and it uses finger movements to create the anthropomorphic effect. Wearing the device is similar to having eyes and a mouth on the hand; the wearer's hand spontaneously expresses their emotions. Interactive manipulation by controllers and sensors make the hand look animated.
